The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Matty Jones and Curtis Da Costa have been handed professional contracts by Swindon Town Matty Jones and Curtis Da Costa have been handed professional contracts by Swindon Town

SECOND-YEAR scholars Curtis Da Costa and Matty Jones will be offered professional contracts at Swindon Town.

The duo were told the news this afternoon by academy manager Jeremy Newton and under 18s manager Jamie Pitman, who said: "The two lads have worked very hard over the two years of their scholarship. They have shown good consistency and deserve the chance to further their career at Swindon Town Football Club.

"The club would like to thank all the second-year scholars for their behaviour and dedication to Swindon Town."

Da Costa and Jones will return after the off-season break to join up with the Town squad as they prepare for the 2014/15 season.

Two scholars missed out on pro deals with Swindon - Salvyn Kisitu and Liam Walsh. 

Kisitu tweeted: "Has been a pleasure working with the lads this year and leaving Swindon with no regrets to how hard I've worked and know.

"Another club with appreciate that and this is just a minor set back which I will overcome and prove them wrong which I'm used to doing."
